Inventor of Ingenious Ideas
And now a few tidbits about your show host, Karen George. Karen grew up in Texas and has lived in Houston for 20 years (by way of Corpus Christi, St. Louis, Kerrville, & San Antonio). Helping professions have always enticed Karen as shown by her career choices: English teacher, weight loss counselor, three positions in mental health direct care, and community outreach & program coordinator for a mental health advocacy & education organization.
Karen became her own boss at age 50+ when she started an event planning company. As she learned about social media to promote the business, she discovered a new interest that combines creativity and research, two of her favorite things! So in 2016, she became a Social Media & Facebook Ads Strategist & Manager.
Having been through the experience herself, Karen knows what a challenge it is to overcome obstacles in the working world at age 50+. Through this show, she hopes to assist you in the search for your own “silver linings”!
